    In addition to insulating, you can turn off the room cooling and any fans in the room, since you only need a few more degrees.

    If you want to actually print ABS parts that large, make sure you have a heated chamber, the warmer the better - as close to 100C as you can get.

    The more powerful your motors, the heavier and more rigid your frame needs to be. For larger distances, consider closed-loop encoders - especially if you're pushing a lot of mass around.

    Hyrel has options to include 4th/5th axis, 3phase 48VDC spindle tool, and/or 40w CO2 laser to our Hydra 16A 3D printers, but you're talking $15k or more if you want all of that at once.

    Most hairsprays have both sticky stuff (to keep the shape) and lubricant (so one hair doesn't stick to the next). This is not helpful for printing.

    Do you mean tubes to deliver filament to the print head?

    On our (Hyrel) 250-260C heads, we only use PTFE (Teflon) 2 mm ID tubing. Inside the hot head, we use PTFE tubing that mates with the brass...

    An online filament calculator says 1kg of ABS has 400m of filament, which normally costs about $20.
